February: What you might have missed

We know it can be hard to check Kids in the Capital everyday. That’s why we put together these monthly recaps to give you an ideas of what you might have missed.  And you don’t want to miss a thing.  Activities for Kids

There are a million great places to take your kids in Ottawa. This month we visited an Early Years Centre and the Museum of Science and Technology. We also talked about supporting sports for kids, taking in Monkey Rock at Tuscon's restaurant, eating out at the Elgin Street Diner, hosting a birthday party at the Putting Edge and the Great Backyard Bird Hunt.


We made some delicious blueberry crumb muffins and had fun making pancakes with toddlers.


We decorated on a budget with felt garland and made and played with parachutes.

Parenting Tips

This month we talked about Kindness week and the National Gallery for Moms.

Social Media

We talked about some great Ottawa folks to follow on Twitter and about an upcoming Twitter workshop you can take!


As always we have great sponsors to thank and welcome.  This month we had a great review and giveaway from Starr Gymnastics and welcomed a new sponsor - the Soloway Jewish Community Centre.

Valentine's Day

Valentine's is a time to make loved ones feel extra special.  This month we talked about the little things you can do to make Valentine's Day special for your kids, we made valentine's cards and also sweets. We talked about love books and we talked about a valentine's meal with no babysitter required. Oh, and have we told you lately we love you? :)


Ottawa in February is all about Winterlude.  This month we talked about family fun at Winterlude and of course, about beavertails,.

Winter Fun

There are so many fun things to do in the winter in Ottawa. This month we had fun with a toboggan, we went on a winter wandering adventures and we embraced winter memories.
